How are the Fall Leaves in your hometown this year?

It won't begin in DFW for about another month..

I'll bet New England is beautiful right now.

It'll be here soon. Some of the street trees have been turning yellowish in recent weeks (I think due to lack of water more than seasonal change), but if you look closely the orange and red hues are starting to become ever so slightly visible on the mostly green maple leaves. I love autumn. I can't wait to take a drive out to the countryside to see the vivid colors, take a hike, sip some apple cider, and breathe in that fresh, cool air. :-D

The only fall color I'll see here in Houston is brown leaves falling I hate that I'm not getting to experience fall colors and fall weather this year in North Carolina!

We're past our peak here. I live about an hour west of Denver at 8600 ft, so our leaves change quite a bit earlier than most area's. I'm not sure where Denver is at this point, but last time I was there the leaves had mostly changed.

I was in CT early last week and the leaves were just starting to change. I was hoping to see more color but I was happy to see even a little color!

It's Oregon, so it's always green.... most of the trees are fir or pine. For some reason, flowers stay in bloom until December so it's pretty nice. Not as colorful as the midwest and east coast when it comes to fall, which i miss.

Here too

Here in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, we are almost to the peak of our foliage, and it is absolutely beautiful here. I just went on a trip up I-81 through Northeast Pennsylvania and Upstate New York and the views were breathtaking.
